All the church! Tonight, Thanksgiving, and supporting our world in prayer

Three things:

1 – Tonight.  Wednesday testimony meeting is still on, despite the nor’easter that’s been gently delivering rain/snow/hail all day.  We’ll be warmly ensconced in the Eastern Bank community room, and we’ll have our phone line as usual (info @ the bottom) for those who aren’t able to make it in person.

2 – Tomorrow = Thanksgiving!  We’re hosting a joint thanksgiving service with our sister church, Third Church of C.S., Boston.  It’ll be happening at 10:00am – half hour earlier than usual – @ the Nate Smith House, 155 Lamartine St, JP (map):

You can call in on our regular line, too!  We won’t do phone intros as usual (only because of the number of in-person folks we’ll have).  However, if you call in, you’ll be more than welcome to share your Thanksgiving gratitude during testimony time.  We’ll make sure you can hear others who share in the room, too.  Call in early if you’d like so we can say hi.  🙂

And if you’d like to read the Thanksgiving lesson in advance, here it is: http://christianscience.com/bible-lessons/thanksgiving/thanksgiving

3 – Every day = a day for peace and love.  If you’ve been following the news in the US about Ferguson, MO, you might be wondering if there’s anything you can do.  As a fellow Christian Scientist said in response, “no prayer falls to the ground.” (see 34:55-40:20 of this program)

Taking all of our hopes & wishes for humanity and giving them over God – the one big Love, who’s above varied opinions or human tragedy or any horrible “-isms”… the great protector and equalizer – is something we can all do right now.  This isn’t ignorance or blindness… it’s most definitely a form of activism.

If you’d like to see how some others have been praying, one place to look is http://time4thinkers.com/prayerwatch-ferguson-verdict/.  You can read and share your own prayerful ideas, too.

That’s all for now.  Love each other, stay warm.  🙂
